The hotel is like a small village laid out, with small houses with 10-12 living areas (ground floor and 1st floor) and small ponds, in which one flamingos, peacocks and südameriknaische ducks looks. The whole complex is with a beautiful flora stocked. There are 2 areas : Tropical and caribe. You can Tropical residents but as everything use as the caribe residents! Except for the royal service, the you can book. But do you? Our room was very spacious, that …  read hotel review

Over the christmas holidays until the beginning of january enjoyed the stay. Very friendly staff in the whole area, always endeavor everything clean and in order to hold. The kitchen is highly recommended, everything was present in sufficient quantity, no matter, whether on the beach (breakfast and lunch) or on the market place. Service very nice and mostly also competent. Around new year's day it was a little crowded, so short waiting periods until a table was free, but easily. Rooms are very clean, sometimes there are some usage, but in the vacation one is the least amount of time ... in the room. The beach area was cleaned every morning by the seaweed cleaned and between the beach chairs was constantly staff traveling around everything purely to hold. Couches are sufficiently present, towels could one each day again on the beach. Security also on the beach, not disturbing, as all were very friendly and helpful. With something english and spanish comes one well, german is hardly spoken. Pool was always clean, we actually didn't use it, since we were mostly at the beach were. Transport in the extensive plant by constantly driving diesel locomotives or golf cart. The beach is also within a few minutes walking distance. Guests from all over the world, mainly americans, canadians, spaniards some german and also a few russians. And all are-) We really enjoyed our stay We are coming again-) read hotel review

The hotel is with distance one of the largest installations, which i up to now saw. The condition, and the cleanliness were perfect. The hotel was a pure all inclusive hotel. In the lobby, as well as in certain room categories (for example, romance suite), there is free wi-fi. The room safe costs 2 American Dollar per day. There is an upgrade to the royal service for 40 American Dollar per day per person, which we did not use however. Check-out time is 12:00 a. m. Per verlängerungsstunde the hotel requires per room 15 American Dollar. This price is ... reasonable, especially, if the transfer only against evening, since all services continue to use. The hotel is divided into two parts, Tropical and caribe. We stayed in the caribe part. Tropical is rather for families. Due to the size of the area the paths are partly a bit longer. We needed from lobby/restaurants to our room about 15 minutes to foot. To the beach and pool was not even 1 minute. There are 3 small lanes, which in a distance of about 20 minutes drive. For the royal service there was an extra shuttle service. We can only recommend to walk, since the area beautifully laid out. There is a wide variety of birds and animals to see. Of flamingos, peacocks, herons and geese to sea turtles. The guest structure composed of americans, hispanics, russian, german and a few french, together. read hotel review

    We had like already mentioned a romance suite, which was in the caribe part of was. There are 12 rooms in a bungalow. On the ground floor with a garden and a sunbathing area, on the top floor with a balcony and beautiful rattan furniture. Around the garden are both plants, which the view in the room impossible, so that one also in the ground floor of his privacy. The room is equipped with a mini bar (free of charge), jacuzzi, double shower, flat screen, coffee maker, a sun umbrella and iron. The room was beautiful and huge.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    There are 4 buffet restaurants (grill restaurant turey, grill Agora, market place, gaurapo ), wherein the market place the main restaurant was. The turey and Agora are located on the beach. There is also 10 theme restaurants, of which 2 not all-inclusive, the hokkaido (japanese) and steak & lobster. The other 8 - Capri (fish ), El Guarapo (dominican), le gourmet (international), hacienda (mexican), la pagoda (thai), la gondola (italian), ma maison (french) and american grill are all-inclusive. , but you have to reserve a table. This can be by computer to the reservation in the lobby or in the ' handtuchhaus' or on the guest service make. Especially delicious was the hacienda, here we were even twice. The quantity in the market place is outstanding, but sometimes the quality is affecting. The food is not quite warm and there is no certain spice, but definitely everyone in its taste and is more than enough. The cleanliness and hygiene one cannot suspend anything. The atmosphere especially in the market place is somewhat kantienmäßig, but still nice. Very nice we found the grill Agora on the beach, since one here early and lunch good food with an even better view could be enjoyed. Sometimes lunch also right on the beach a beach with freshly grilled burgers and hot dogs set up. On the beach you could for small prices cocktails directly from the pineapple and coconut, (circa 4a 9 American Dollar). There was also 10 bars. 2 directly at the two large pools, one at the beach and the other in the lobbies. Our favourite bar was the avenue bar. Good music, great bartender and better cocktails. Tip has sadly no better value, except for the bartender.

    The friendliness of the staff was very different. Especially front desk, the gardener and the barkeeper were very friendly, the waiters and the cleaning staff only partially. Even with tips were not friendly or courteous. The national language is spanish, but you could get by with english also good. German is not understood or spoke. The room cleaning was a bit superficial, but in these countries usually is. In the hotel there was a doctor with practice, which 24 hours is available. (price is charged extra, auslandsreisekrankenversicherung ). There is also a child care, which we did not use however (couples), and currency exchange, gift shops (2 times), laundry.

  • Sport & Leisure
    5.0

    There are various activities such as beach volleyball, Tennis and water sports offered. Inventive ghosts their moneys worth in the 'flip flops themselves'. There is also a casino, kids club and animation shows. Here we can say anything about it. The beach chairs on the beach are a bit older and worn out, the at the pool were new and very comfortable. There are two large pools, one on the Tropical and one on the caribe side. The beach is beautiful. There are plenty of umbrellas and 'reserve' is not necessary, since there were enough available.

  • Location
    6.0

    The journey from Punta Cana International Airport the hotel is approximately 25 minutes. Directly before the hotel there is a nice shopping mall (Palma Real shopping Village), which however was rather expensive. For urlaubsandenken are the prices okay, but clothing is more expensive than in Germany. In this mall is also a disco, the 'transportation's jewel'. There are still very many excursions, such as manati park (admission 20 American Dollar for 2-12 years, 35 American Dollar adults, 125 American Dollar swimming with dolphins ), Dolphin Iceland (swimming with dolphins 155 American Dollar with sea lions 80 American Dollar), trucktours, speedboat, city tours and many others offered. Prices are between 50 American Dollar until 160 American Dollar.
